You learn something new every day, whether or not you realize it right away. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Today I learned the difference between bowler hats, pork pie hats and fedoras. Before today, they were all just fedoras to me. It never occurred to me that all three of these different hat styles had different names.

I also learned that Roseanne is Jewish, and that gummy shot glasses exist.

It doesn't have to be anything life-changing or significant or anything, just something that you learned. So AG, I ask you now, what did you learn today?

Try to do a 180 degrees with your bike while hitting the side of your knee on it and tell me how it feels. I did it twice and every time I saw black with 100 light bugs flying around me and couldn't move my leg for 15 minutes.

If you want to remaine friwndly with someone you work with, there are 3 things you should never apoarch:
1) Music: Danielo put 'working class hero' on his phone; Dude:"what is this bad song? Its so slow and boring"; Danielo: *hit him with his dogtags; Dude:"Ouch. Please stop. Nooo".
2) political/social opinions: Dudess: "Im not racist but...; Danielo:"Im sure you are not, so lets keep it that way and please shut the heaven up".
3) Start a prank war with an unstable person: Episode A: Danielo hide ThisGuy charger by sticking it on the celling with ducktape. Episode B: ThisGuy scream for straight 15 minutes in my ear in a squicky voice, not even breathing. Episode C: Danielo hit him with his dogtags, ThisGuy cry and go snitch to his officer. Episode D: Danielo has charges on being a evil bully. yeay.

I learned that there's a user, @sploder666, with a friends list that goes on for 70 pages. You think your social life is hectic.

It is sad. He had one of the most impressive film careers ever, having appeared in at least one movie every year since 1948.

I learned that France (no. 3) got their arse kicked by Columbia (no. 28) in the Women's World cup of soccer.

France got 21 shots on goal but most of their passes were bad and they scored nothing while Columbia scored 2 goals in 3 shots. Their goal keeper was amazing. I can't say the same for the French goal keeper who pretty much gave Columbia their 2nd goal.
The referee was as bad as the French team BTW. Wow!

SOB, they killed Jon Snow! Daenerys is in trouble and Drogon is probably dead. Queen Cersei walking naked though the city was kind of nice though.

You can learn a lot from the short ads that play before a game, like how Olive Garden now serves breadstick sandwiches.
